    Just finished Jack Falla's Home Ice. Its a really quick read and I enjoyed it. Very likeable crotchety old mannish story telling. Now that the books back in print it's easy enough to pick up.

    Finally got around to buying and reading this. Disappointed but not greatly. Too much mundane writing about family members history. The writing itself wasn't anything outstanding either. I don't know if that is the fault of the translator or Larsson.

    Very much enjoyed the sections on Blomqvist and Salander. Larsson did a great job on their creation and evolution.

    Just got The Girl Who Played with Fire....so, yes, I plan on reading all three.

    reading Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski. love The Witcher story
    You piqued my interest so i went and bought the two witcher books. I just finished the first one. I liked it and I'm looking forward to reading the next one. It was a pretty fast read.

    he really has a way with conversation that is very very believable. the opening chapter in this book is something like 50 pages but ends up being dandelion finishing a concert and all the people watching trying to determine what the songs are about and it just goes on and on from Geralt to racism and politics. but i loved the witcher video games. the witcher 1 is probably my favorite game ever.

    you just have to remember that (at least the 1st book) is a collection of short stories made for a sci-fi magizine in poland. so some of the stories are non-sequential or just random. and there is a polish version of a 2nd book which is not published in the US, and this book is supposed to be the 3rd in his works.

    Just got done with the second book in Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan series: Behemoth.

    This series is just plain alternate-history, steam/bio punk fun.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
